GE's Immelt says remains positive on China

NEW DELHI, Sept 21 (Reuters) - General Electric Co Chairman Jeff Immelt said on Monday that China remained on a growth path and that he wasn't as negative on the world's second-biggest economy as others were.

"I am not as dark as other people are.. I see growth on the ground," he told reporters in New Delhi.

A string of downbeat activity data combined with wild price swings in the stock markets and a surprise currency devaluation in August have fuelled fears that the Chinese economy may be slowing more sharply than was expected earlier, putting Beijing's 2015 growth target of 7 percent at risk.
